Beginning on 1 February, Netflix subscribers in 150 countries will be able to binge-watch the toughest version of “The Apprentice” in history.
This edition of the hit reality TV series was created by ONE Championship, the largest global sports media property in Asian history. Unlike any other version of “The Apprentice” before it, the show features 16 candidates from 11 countries who participate in a series of physical challenges and business tasks.
Across 13 episodes, the popular format has been reimagined to test strength, character, and determination. Viewers will see World Champion athletes and top CEOs push the candidates to their breaking points.
This all-new take on “The Apprentice” is led by ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong, who’s built the company’s US$1-billion sports media empire alongside his team.
“We are excited to share ‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition’ with Netflix viewers all around the globe,” said Sityodtong.
“Join me on my mission to unleash greatness from 16 candidates, who are competing for a US$250,000 job offer and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become my protege.”
The global candidates face off in a series of grueling physical tasks led by the world’s best martial artists, including Georges St-Pierre, Renzo Gracie, Sage Northcutt, Demetrious Johnson, and Angela Lee.
In the boardroom, their intellect is challenged by leading global CEOs, including Anthony Tan from Grab, Eric Yuan from Zoom, and Jeff Lawson from Twilio.
Viewers can follow their local candidates, who hail from Germany, Singapore, The Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, India, Russia, the United States, New Zealand, Venezuela, and Thailand. The cultural diversity of the cast and the competitive nature of the candidates will deliver exciting action and drama to Netflix.
